Do you love Autumn as much as I do? Not going to lie, I look forward to pumpkin spice season every single year. I’m also known to make pumpkin pie & cookies in the middle of the summer. And I will take a pumpkin pie over a cake any year (unless it’s carrot).
Yes, my name is Lauren and I’m a pumpkin addict.
As you may have gathered from previous posts, I’m also a bit of a health nut. So I’ve made a list of my top 5 packaged pumpkin spice treats that are a bit healthier than a PSL or those bizarro Oreos. Sometimes you just need a fix, am I right?
No 1… The Republic Of Tea Pumpkin Spice Black Tea
I love Republic of Tea. My favorite blend of theirs is the Blackberry Sage, which I drink year-round. However, their Pumpkin Spice tea is like drinking Christmas in a cup. It is filled with spices & warms my soul. You can either drink this plain or get fancy with a splash of almond milk & a spot of honey.
No 2… Stonewall Kitchen Maple Pumpkin Butter
I’m a sucker for my grandma’s apple butter. It was only natural that I progressed to Pumpkin Butter. Stonewall Kitchen does a good job with their products & they use quality ingredients to make them. I love hearing stories of small businesses blossoming. Did you know they started at a Famers’ Market in 1991? But I digress, Stonewall Pumpkin butter has only 8 ingredients & is perfect on toast.
No. 3… Birch Benders Pancake & Waffle Mix Pumpkin Spice
As much as I like to eat waffles made from scratch, I don’t always have the time. Birch Benders the first natural and organic, just-add-water pancake & waffle mix. Helloooooo gorgeous…. you are so delicious. ‘cuse me, I was having a moment. Just add some maple syrup & you’re good to go.
No. 4… Boom Chicka Pop Pumpkin Spice
Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I usually enjoy it with coconut oil & sea salt. Sometimes It’s nice to mix it up! The Boom Chicka Pop is a fun Fall alternative. I keep it in my pantry for popcorn emergencies. I can’t be the only one that has those, right?
No. 5… Pumpkin & Maple Cinnamon Spoons
I’m not a huge sweets person, but these are fun. I use them to sweeten my tea when I’m feeling fancy. I plan on using them for a fun brunch party!
Bonus… Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm by Burt’s Bees
A non-edible way to enjoy pumpkin spice! I’ve always loved Burt’s Bees. Make your perfect pout even more kissable with a warmly seasoned lip balm.
